Please Help. How to ship Trailer from Arizona to Seattle?

Hi There, I am trying to ship a 63' Safari from Arizona to Seattle. I know it most likely needs to go on an open air carrier, can anyone suggest a company to get a quote from? Thank you so much!

Also, try this site: uShip - The Online Shipping Marketplace - Ship Freight, Furniture, Vehicles or Moves You can arrange for folks to bid on your transport, either towing or on a flatbed.

But: why not fix it up a bit where it is and then tow it up to Alaska, enjoying the trip? You're gonna' need to get the tires, brakes, bearings, brake/tail lights & wiring looked at / attended to first thing anyway ... and once you've done that, she's probably safely towable if you've got a tv and hitch ...

I use a guy in Arizona for hauling my stuff. He's licensed insured etc. Price is good and he has always taken good care of my vehicles.

Good luck in your search.
I'd rather be boon docking in the desert.

I agree with AirsDream. What an excuse for an adventure!!!!
Make it safe. Make it legal. And haul it home!!
You would talk about the trip for years to come. And there are probably more and cheaper options to getting it ready for the road outside than you will find at home.
Why not?

Thanks for the suggestions everyone. I would LOVE to take an adventure and drive the trailer myself, unfortunatly I don't have a vehicle in Arizona that I could use to tow it, and once it gets to Seattle it will be going on the boat for its journey up to Alaska. I will investigate all your suggestions and see what I can figure out. cheers and thanks again for all the help!
